The support order can be modified only by the Massachusetts court. The issue of jurisdiction is governed by the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) which applies in this case. Pursuant to the UIFSA, a court that has issued a support order has continuing exclusive jurisdiction over the support order as long as the state remains the residence of the obligor, or the individual obligee or the child for whose benefit the support order was issued.” Since the father is the obligor and still lives there, only the Massachusetts court can modify the order.Ask a similar question
You can file here but since the order is a MA order and the father still lives in MA jurisdiction remains in MA. The case will be transferred to MA for determination. You can appear by telephone in most cases.
